Tattoo After Care
Do not wrap the Tattoo with anything.
Do not touch the tattoo.
Avoid exposure to dust – it could lead to an infection.
Avoid exposure to sunlight.
Avoid gymming, swimming, and any activity that causes excessive sweating.
Dermalize Pro is an all-in-one aftercare solution meant to protect your tattoo, especially in the initial stages of healing. It is waterproof and prevents external contaminants from entering the wound.
Once the artist has helped you with the application of Dermalize Pro over your tattoo, follow the below instructions to take the best care of it:
Leave it on for a minimum of 5 days.
You can still shower and the film can get wet, but avoid prolonged submersion. The self-adhesive fil can take only so much.
Avoid hot water showers.
At some point, the edges will start to peel back – just trim those edges with some scissors. Your main aim is to ensure that the wrap stays over the entirety of your tattoo. But if it peels back enough to uncover any part of your tattoo, take it off completely and wash it gently.
Once the wrap is off, make sure to keep your tattoo lightly moisturized with some coconut/baby oil, when it feels dry or tight.
In hot weather or depending on what you consume and how your body reacts to it, people are likely to get a heat rash under it, which can be mistaken for an infection. Please contact us immediately so we can take you through what you need to do in case this happens.
